I desire to tattoo your mind.
To leave my mark on your soul, your fears, your heart and your pain.
I need to know if you’re authentic. Do you bleed the same fervent passion inside that you declare on the outside?
Please understand….I don’t need you because I’m lonely or need you to bring me comfort or security or to confirm my self worth. I have invested time into my heart and the ground I stand on is solid. Solid enough to hold me through any storm.
I’m emotionally, mentally wired for peaceful times of solitude. Would you understand my need to be quiet? If even for days?
I search for a deeper level of love beyond the shallow, the drama and even the lust. I need you whole…complete in your own identity. At peace with the void that may still hunger for authentic connection. That hunger and angst reminding you that your heart is still able to feel, want and has not become jaded.
I ache for a relationship that is intense but healthy, devoted yet free, supportive but not smothering.
I need you intuitive, passionate, emphatic, sincere and fearless when it comes to living life.
I want to be seen, heard, understood, valued and loved for who I am as I will bring these same gifts to you.
I don’t want to hide, pretend, suppress or change who I am. I like who I am. I celebrate who I am.
I will not ‘put up’ with you but celebrate you and all that involves your very being.
I can not ‘fix’ you nor do I desire to try. But my presence and love will heal you. For life can be cruel and love is meant to cover pain and bring healing.
I want my soul to seep deeply into yours and yours into mine.
I want the fire to burn hot enough to tattoo this love upon your mind.
